    Battlefield 1942 and the expansion pack really aren't flight simulators per se, but they sound like something you'd be interested in, and it's a good game. If you've never played it before, I recommend you try it out.

    Flight sims are very limited on the Mac. :( If you like F/A-18s, you might like Graphsim's F/A-18 Hornet OIF. Another sim you may like is X-Plane. This is currently about as good as it gets on the Mac. This may look like a sim with civilian aircraft, but it has tons of free add-ons for fighters, spacecraft, x-planes, and almost anything you can think of. You can even fly space planes on Mars. Even better, you can leave Earth's atmosphere and re-enter with the space shuttle. :eek: :cool: The only downside I can see is that you can't fly combat missions...but you can drop weapons on houses. ;)

    Falcon 4.0 was probably the best combat sim ever for the Mac. In my opinion, the best sim ever to be made for Mac was Terminal Reality's Fly!2k.

    I think I've heard some rumors of a new Falcon sim for Mac (Falcon 5.0?), but I wouldn't hold my breath to see if we ever get it.
